United Kingdom

As a major contributor to the military campaign, and an active Coalition partner across all lines of effort, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is playing a leading role in the Global Coalition committed to defeating Daesh.

We must be able to say to Daesh’s victims, and make clear to the world, that we, as the international community, will hold Daesh to account for its crimes. So I commit today to working (with all of you here) to drive a new global campaign to ensure Daesh is brought to justice.

The Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP, former Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs
